What is Elderberry?

Elderberries are a powerhouse, body boosting fruit of the Sambucus tree, which is actually more like a bush than a tree. These tiny berries pack a massive punch against bugs threatening the immune system. Native Americans have used Elderberry, both the flowers and the berries, for centuries to ward off sicknesses when the body needs a fighter in its corner. Like the people behind Buddha Teas, Native Americans were opposed to wastefulness and used the rest of the tree for musical instruments, dye, and arrow shafts. Years later, research has led scientists to realize that these berries have a tremendously beneficial impact on people who are feeling ill or fatigued. In order to understand the power behind the berry, you’ll have to gain a little insight into the world of Botany. So, let’s explore.

Harvested from the indigenous Sambucus elder tree, these berries have been a source of nutrition and medicine for thousands of years. Much research has been done regarding the actual medicinal benefits of elderberries when used for common ailments and not shocking, it’s been proven to be highly effective against those nasty winter bugs and even chronic issues.

This little berry is also super rich in phytochemicals. Let’s talk about what these are and how they a crucial for living beings.

One more little dose of information about flavonoids before the science gets overwhelming. Flavonoids are phytonutrients and are a subcategory of phytochemicals. They are very important and serve a plethora of uses. They’re responsible for the rainbow of colors fruits, veggies, and flowers wear. Elderberries produce them in abundance and their rich color is proof. Flavonoids help regulate cellular activity and fight off free radicals. Again, you can imagine what happens to us when we eat…or drink them. You may be aware that you consume flavonoids every day.

We've realized that any time we need nature to provide for us, we must give something back. Sustainably harvesting and keeping waste and pollution at a bare minimum made sense to us.

Bleach-Free Tea Bags

Our tea bags may not be the whitest, but they ARE the safest because Buddha Teas ONLY uses bleach-free teas bags. For us, this is not a preference but a necessity. Tea bags that have been bleached contain harmful chemicals such as dioxin and epichlorohydrin. Dioxin is a highly toxic, chemical compound produced by some chemical processes such as bleaching paper. It falls into the category of a POP (persistent organic pollutant) which, as the name suggests, persists and refuses to breakdown in our bodies and the environment, potentially taking decades to detox. Epichlorohydrin (bleach) is also toxic and listed as a hazardous air pollutant (HAP). It has been classified by the EPA as a human carcinogen.

We believe that our customers should never have to choose between their health and their senses so we proudly offer bleach-free tea bags so that they can taste the purity of natural teas without the cost of harmful chemicals or additives.
